Chloé opens new store in Zurich. The French company, owned by the luxury holding Richemont, has opened its first store in the Swiss city. The store is located in Bahnhofstrasse, the main shopping street of the city.
The store will have the entire offer of the brand: ready-to-wear, accessories, shoes and jewelry. Chloé has 60 directly operated stores in Europe and the new opening is part of the group’s bet on its retail strategy in Europe and Asia.
The company, headquartered in Paris and founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, sells ready-to wear and accessories for women. Since its beginning the company was led by its founder until 1985, when Richemont acquired the brand.
